Phonetic Computer Eyewear review - Mom Knows It All

Did you know that spending a lot of time behind electronic screens like computers or video games causes eyestrain? It is actually called, digital eyestrain and can cause a lot of problems. Here is a definition from the 2016 vision council:

“Digital eye strain is the physical discomfort felt after two or more hours in front of a digital screen and is associated with the close to mid-range distance of digital screens, including desktop and laptop computers, tablets, e-readers and smartphones.”

Think about how many hours you or your family members spend online or looking at your phones! I know after a few hours of writing reviews or articles, my vision gets blurry and my eyes and head ache somewhat. When I heard about Phonetic Computer Eyewear, I was excited to try it out! I have complicated vision with progressive lenses, Phonetic only has glasses for single vision eyewear at this point, but they do plan to expand to progressive lenses in the future. My 16 year old daughter was happy to try the lenses out for me.

Phonetic Computer Eyewear review - Mom Knows It All

Phonetic eyewear was created by optical industry professionals with the goal of providing a solution for digital eyestrain that was both affordable and fashionable. Up until now the only solution available has been ugly yellow gaming glasses or specialty computer eyewear from your eye doctor costing hundreds of dollars!

Phonetic eyewear deflects some of the blue light from digital screens which eases the discomfort from digital eyestrain. They come in single vision, reading glasses, sunglasses and no power, clear lenses for those with perfect vision.

My daughter chose the style, Bravo in the black color. There were so many cute choices and each came in several colors! She looked really nice in them and said she could tell a difference in how her eyes felt looking at the computer screen. they felt more comfortable.

I really can’t wait for them to come out with the progressive lenses! I would love to try a pair with a fun color and style! Most of the lenses are under $100, some are only $59,  which is pretty amazing! That includes the frame and the specialty lens!

The ordering process is easy and the employees are very kind and helpful! You can look at all the awesome styles and pick your favorite on the Phonetic website at

I feel discomfort daily, especially if I am on the computer more than 8 hours.

I feel eye discomfort every now and then, on days when I am on the computer for long hours during the day, which is not every day.

My eye doctor reminds me often that something different than reading glasses is needed for computer work.

By the end of the day my eyes are tired. Wondering if these would help.

im 42 and getting to the age where I might need bifocals. I would love glasses like these to help put that off for a little while longer, by reducing eyestrain. I notice my vision gets blurry when I look away from my phone.

Phonetic always meant sounds to me; so this use is far out.
